"That time in the past where the need for system memory of less than a gigabyte has come and gone and is but a distant memory. Welcome to the now where operating systems can make use of 4 gigabytes or more of system memory. The Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR3 PC3 10600 modules deliver performance with a little extra bling for the guys and gals who like to show off the innards of their system. In my testing I found the Crucial modules superior to all of the modules I have tested to date. The only weak spot was the memory bandwidth and 1024x768 gaming score, this was however a small enough difference that in day to day operation you would never see at the performance differential. The tight timings do help with the performance of these modules. Even though some of the comparison modules are running tighter timings they come close but do not deliver the same performance."
